Bhutto's Assassination

The brave, democracy-driven Benazir Bhutto was killed today in an extremist suicide attack in Pakistan.

The former Prime Minister knew the grave risks she was assuming returning to her native Pakistan several weeks ago. Her ambition was to help stabilize and re-democratize a country that is increasingly the focal point of the struggle between the West and radical Islam.

The stakes there ARE enormous--to include the Islamic nation's dozens of nuclear weapons, not to mention the welfare of more than 162M Pakistani citizens, most of whom remain liberal and westernized.

Sadly today, the situation is clearly moving closer to the feared societal meltdown in Pakistan that would pose worldwide danger.

Terror-wielding groups such as the Taliban and Al Qaeda are fully engaged and aiming for chaos in the region--attempting to gain control or influence over unknown numbers of susceptible members of the Pakistani military. If the radicals succeed in overthrowing the government there, the entire global dynamic becomes extremely volatile.

My suggestion--watch this situation very closely and determine how this might impact your own readiness plan.
